All Persimmon Trees are NOT created equal. Many nurseries grow persimmons from seed. These trees will look good, but will take 6-9 years to start fruiting. Even worse, they will likely cross-pollinate with other varieties, giving you a "Mutt", not a true Fuyu. So their customers can wait up to 9 years to discover they have bad tasting fruit.

We take cuttings from a Fuyu mother tree, proven to make great tasting fruit. We graft that on to a hardy root stock. The result: you get a tree that thinks it's mature and will start producing almost immediately. You're also ensured that you'll get great tasting fruit just like the mother tree.

Our grafting process has been proven for hundreds of years. It's all natural, non-GMO and is used for most commercial persimmon orchards. It is difficult and time consuming to graft persimmons, which is why many nurseries don't do it. But the difference for you is huge.

Your Fuyu persimmons are sweet and non-astringent. So you don't have to set them out for weeks, waiting for them to ripen. You can eat them right off the tree, like a sweet apple. Fuyu is the most popular persimmon in the world, accounting for 80% of the market.

A mature Persimmon tree can produce over 300 lbs of fruit. Your Persimmons will typically start to ripen in September and can stay on the tree through the end of the year. Fuyu can then store for months  It's a favorite of many "Preppers".

This is about the easiest fruit tree you can plant. Fast growing. Naturally pest and disease resistant. Tolerates a wide variety of soils and climates. Drought tolerant, once established. In fact it has a long tap root that searches out its own water source. Basically you just plant, then pick.

Your tree is self-pollinating, which means it can fruit all by itself. However, it will produce more fruit with a second Fuyu to cross-pollinate with. Some of our customers, with small yards, will plant two trees in the same hole. This gives them cross-pollination and a large amount of fruit from a small space.

Some nurseries advertise a tall height, then chop 1/3rd off. This reduces their shipping cost, but leaves you with a stick that is shorter than you paid for. We prune your tree throughout its life... not just before shipping. This gives you more branches lower on the tree. Resulting in:  Quicker production...More fruit at a safe picking height... and more fruit over the life of your tree.

Your Fuyus arrives potted, with all their roots intact. Many nurseries dig their trees out of the ground, then ship them "bare root". This process is fine for many fruit trees, but not for Persimmons.

 Get what you pay for... both in what you see and don't see.

Start saving thousands of dollars and enjoying a lifetime of sweet delicious fruit. Order your persimmon trees today, while they're still available.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Fuyu Persimmon


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fuyu Persimmon.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fuyu Persimmon gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Fuyu Persimmon again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

What type of soil do they like and PH level?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
Best Answer: Congratulations on buying Fuyu persimmon. You will not be disappointed with the fruit. It is really good. I eat the whole fruit, including the skin. I do not particularly know what type of soil or pH level they best grow in, but I can tell you that my tree and the neighbor's next door are thriving well here in Douglasville, GA. If you can google the type and pH of the soil in Douglasville, GA, that will lead you to the answer.

Is the rootstock for this tree native persimons or lotus?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2014
Best Answer: I had the same question before and it is native Persimmon root stock, just a younger tree. The tree is usually crafted with a older branch and the root is a younger persimmon.

I live in Connecticut, is it too late to plant Fuyu Persimmon tree on the ground in late June or begiining of July? Should I leave it in a pot and plant it next Spring?
Joyce80 on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: I live in Seattle, WA, and I planted my tree in late summer, less than a year ago. It wintered well (we have mild winters here), and leafed out in the spring with new growth and actually has five or six fruits forming at this time. I have an older Ffuyu tree that works well in this climate while native persimmon never bears fruit. Bottom line: My experience says plant it now, but your climate is not the same as mine.

Do I have to buy more then one trees in order for Fuyu to produce fruits ?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: The Fuyu Persimmon Tree is self pollinating, however you'll get a much higher fruit yield if your tree has a mate to cross pollinate with.

When is the best time to plant them in Rhode Island? Since they are not a native species, are there any diseases, insects or pests that will bother them?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer: It is best to plant them in the early Spring or early fall. Unless you aren't experiencing scorching summer heat, then you can plant it now. They're pretty pest and disease resistant. Any organic pesticide will knock out threats and your tree won't develop a fungus unless it receives too much water.
